PROJECT DESCRIPTION

O Projeto é desenvolvido na fazenda Florestal Santa Maria, localizada no município de Colniza. A propriedade ocupa uma área de mais de 70 mil hectares no bioma Amazônia, onde a extração de matéria-prima florestal ocorre a partir de um plano de manejo sustentável, potencializando as possibilidades do uso não predatório da floresta. Tendo isso em vista, o projeto Florestal Santa Maria preserva sua área de mata nativa, reduz o desmatamento da Amazônia, diminui o risco de queimadas e gera empregos para a população local, beneficiando todas as esferas que passaram a conviver de forma sustentável.

AMAZON BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION

The Santa Maria project conserves more than 70,000 hectares of the rich biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest through a rigorous monitoring system for the region, carried out through eight bases that were implemented with the carbon project. In addition, the project is FSC certified, ensuring that timber forest products come from a forest with responsible management and promoting job creation by hiring local labor to monitor the forest and develop the project.

SOCIALCARBON Standard Performance

The hexagon demonstrates the continuous improvement of the project during all verification periods. The Social Carbon Standard encourages the reinvestment of a percentage of the income from the carbon credits in socioenvironmental benefits, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Social Carbon: far beyond carbon, it is social equality.

"We have a large sustainable management plan with around 25 species of wood and all employees are registered. The intention is to perpetuate the project, not for the generation who developed it, but for the future generation.”

— Rubens Forbes (Owner of Fazenda Santa Maria)
